Not given Option to merge or replace during install.

Question

I am following the install guide of fear and loathing for New Vegas. After installing Beyond Boulder dome I noticed that there were two flags that notified me that files were overwritten, and when checking the guide it stated that I would be given an option to choose between merge and replace, where I should choose merge. During the install I was not given this option, so how would I go about setting the mod to merge?

In the left-hand pane you should have just one mod called something like "Beyond Boulder Dome", this mod is comprised of the five downloads.

 

Assuming you installed BBD - File 01 - Meshes first, it shouldn't really make too much difference which one you installed first but File 01 is the obvious choice, the installation dialog will appear with the suggested Mod name in the top drop-down box.

When you go to install the subsequent files they will use this name as the default, because all these files come from the same Nexus location, and that will mean after you hit either "OK" or "Manual - OK" the next dialog shown will be the one where you 'Merge, Replace or Rename'.

If you didn't see that second dialog then you must have chosen a different mod name than the one offered and you now have five separate mods for Beyond Boulder Dome.

 

Best option is to uninstall them and reinstall using the correct method.

Sometimes the mods don't have the correct metadata and you have to Query the info. From there it will pick the correct file name.
